River Torridge , Weare Giffard , Bideford.

While exercising on the Tarka trail picked up a flock of geese in flight which eventually flew close enough to make id. Possible as Barnacle geese .They then landed on the Bank of the Torridge just south of Halfpenny bridge.  The 11 Barnacles joined a flock of 26 Canada geese grazing the river bank.  Viewable from the bridge at Annery kiln.
